The following is a brief outline of how uSundo is
Each uSundo program consists of 3 parts – Pre
Haenggong, Haenggong and Post Haenggong. Pre-Haenggong has 60 postures
which stretch the whole body smoothing blood circulation and opening Energy (Ki).
Haenggong has over 500 postures and is the main practice. It develops
Energy (Ki) at the lower abdomen (Tan Cheon). Post Haenggong consists of
30 postures which are used to re- distribute the Energy (Ki) to whole
Ki is a kind of Energy which is essential for our
life from general energy to grow, work or do something. If Ki is exhausted, you
will die. It’s compared to the Battery of car, for ignition of engines and to
the gauges or control parts.
There is no proven report but I believe Ki moves
to major organs of our body by the difference of Electro-magnetic field
strength. There is no physical road for Ki to move, like blood vessel or nerve
etc. It moves as more like wind, without roads. Korean medicine maps its
crossing points as Kyung, Rak, and Hyul. Longitude and Latitude, divided the
body Kyung longitude a Vertical line, Rak latitude horizontal line and Hyul for
the crossing points of Kyung and Rak. And then they found that when they press
one part of human body, then a specific organ in deep in human body shows
reaction. These combinations of organs and points of Hyul is where Korean
Medicine places Acupuncture points.
This following section is an outlined of protocol,
theoretical & philosophical ideas applied in Kouksundo uSundo.
First, applies the theories of Hyul and Kyung Rak
to make postures effect organs. For example in Pre-Haenggong's in the 7th
posture we slowly press Samumkyo-Hyul (2 inch up from inside right ankle)
with both thumbs to stimulate the left
Kidney with the warm Heart Energy.
Because, we know pressing Samumkyo-Hyul delivers
the signals to Kidney, while the Hyul in the thumbs delivers signal to the
Second, follows the rule of Emu-Yang 5. Our
ancestors observed nature for long time, and found that it would be born,
grown, died and re-born, and with this they surmised everything has 2 opposite
sides – Eum and Yang,
and then further deduced its composition into 5
key elements- Soo ( water ), Hwa ( fire ), Mok ( Tree ), To ( Earth ), and Kum
(Iron ). They also believed that if the universe or nature is made by the
Eum-Yang, then the human life also should be the same.
Third, is the
theory of Soo sung Hwa gang water goes up and fire down. As of Sep. 15, 2011, we posted 11 articles on many of
the Search engines, and more than
Wanting to live as part of nature or the universe,
ancient peoples studied its ways. One example, they found that the hot sun
evaporates the cool water, and that the vapor goes up into the sky. They translated
this to the human body Soo ( water- Kidney ) is in the lower abdomen and Hwa (
fire-Heart ) is in the middle of body.
Therefore, they must pull down the warm temperature from Heart to heat the
Kidney and cool Kidney must rise to cool Heart. This is how lower abdomen
breathing imitates nature; water doesn’t go up unless it is changed to vapor by
the heat of Heart.
Another example use of this theory is the 1st
posture of Pre-Haengong, Kigigae (wake up by stretch). Exhale, and bend upper
body down 135 degree, stretch arms and let hang freely down to collect the
Earth Energy ( Eum, Soo ). Then inhale shortly and hold breath, lift up
upper body and the
arms until arms are overhead and slightly extend
backward next to ears.
The Earth Energy (Eum, Soo) is lifted up to meet
Universal Sky Energy (Hwa).
